Margaret, I know it is going to be difficult getting used to not having him call out for your help especially during the night, but it will get easier as time goes by. Be proud that you took such good care of him when he was so sick. Just keep remembering he is in a better place now without pain.
    Love You and will be remembering you tomorrow.
